Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2009, $96,156)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local governments, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice, including for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The disparate jurisdictions consisting of Glynn County and Brunswick City will use their Fiscal Year 2009 JAG award in the amount of $96,156 to cover salaries and purchase equipment. Glynn County, serving as the fiscal agent, will use funds to help cover the salary and benefits of one Glynn/Camden Drug Court Counselor and purchase equipment for the Glynn County Police Department. The department will acquire stinger tire deflation devices, evidence boxes, evidence and surveillance cameras, speed radars, and a body audio device. The Brunswick Police Department will use their portion of funds to assist in paying the salary of one Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) Program Officer. The officer will mentor students in avoiding destructive behaviors and preventing violence while developing a positive bond between law enforcement and youth.
